Product Review: Laura Mercier Perfecting Water Rich

Today I bring you a review of a product I received in my April Look Bag- Laura Mercier Perfecting Water Rich.  The sample size I received was 0.34 fl oz.  

Product Details: Hydrating fluid that temporarily over-hydrates skin allowing deeper penetration of ingredients, moisturizers and serums in further treatments.  Rebuilds & repairs skin's surface layers and lipid barriers.
  • Antioxidants protect against daily aggressors
  • Minimizes and reduces the appearance of pores while addressing surface dehydration
  • Fresh, gel texture provides higher levels of moisture and a richer feel on the skin
  • Never drying
Perfecting Water - Rich - Works best for normal to dry skin.
Perfecting Water - Light - Ideal for normal to oily skin.  Use on clean, dry skin.

Saturate a Cotton Square and gently massage over the entire face and neck using a patting motion. Apply morning and evening.  Source.

When I saw this product I had no idea what it was, nor had I ever heard of "perfecting water."  I mean, do people really pay for water?  But, after using the product, although it may be clear it really isn't actual water.  It is slightly thicker than water and when applied to the face leaves a tacky feeling to the skin for a while (at least it did for me).  The tacky feeling goes away once it dries and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.  Overall I found this to be a pretty nice product, but the truth is, I don't need another step in my daily routine and for me this isn't a "must have".  So while I enjoyed the product and will use the rest of it I don't think I will be purchasing it at this time.  Have you ever tried this product?  What do you think?  Take it or leave it?

The LookBag was purchased by me with my own money.  I am not affiliated with The Look Store or Laura Mercier.  I am not being paid for my reviews and all opinions are my own personal opinions.

  1. I got this in my Look Bag, too, and I haven't tried it yet. I like Laura Mercier stuff in general, but I just don't really get the point of this one.
